Kolkata Fashion Designer Arrested For Hit-And-Run, Was Allegedly Drunk

A man was killed after being hit by a car driven allegedly by a Kolkata-based fashion designer. The car hit him when he was waiting for a bus, the police said. The woman has been arrested.

Around 6:30 am on Sunday, Aditi Agarwal skipped a traffic signal and rammed the victim on the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass, a senior officer of the Kolkata Police said.

Instead of stopping, the woman drove into a five-star hotel nearby. The police tracked her down based on CCTV footage.

A blood test reportedly revealed high alcohol levels.

“She was slurring. It’s quite surprising that she was driving the car. She came out of a pub in the Park Street area and was headed home after dropping her friends. She was speeding when the incident happened,” the officer told news agency PTI.
